Twenty-nine is also the sixth Sophie Germain prime.^{[1]} It is also the sum of three consecutive squares, 2^{2} + 3^{2} + 4^{2}. It is a Lucas prime,^{[2]} a Pell prime,^{[3]} and a tetranacci number.^{[4]} It is an Eisenstein prime with no imaginary part and real part of the form 3n − 1. 29 is also the 10th supersingular prime.^{[5]}
